Fostering a green culture

A big focus of Softchoice’s strategy is enabling our customers to green their IT infrastructure. At the same time, we recognize we must practice what we preach. When it comes to greening our operations, it’s about finding projects that address areas where we can make the biggest difference while also engaging our employees.
Whether it’s reducing energy consumption or eliminating waste generated by daily operations, we’re taking real steps to minimize our environmental impact. Our goal is to become North America’s IT supplier of choice for organizations looking to green their supply chain.

Some ideas include:

  • Create an email alias like where employees can send green suggestions and feedback.
  • Highlight a “green hero” every month that has done something to contribute to your green strategy.
  • Everyone likes a good competition! Create a cross departmental challenge asking people to print less, bring waste-free lunches or shut off lights and computers at the end of the day.
  • Get involved in local community events and create your own “green days” in your office where you can educate each other, share ideas and raise awareness.
